To everything there is a season.......


Here is my second submission for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger, based on the fantastic folkart painting shown below, and also my entry in Our Daily Bread designs "leaves" challenge.  I just received this Our Daily Bread set of stamps which includes the quote from Ecclesiastes, and a leaf block.  So I pulled out the 4 main colors from the painting and stamped and cut out the leaves, scattering them across the quote.  The background dp is from the dollar store, and had all of the colors in it!  At the last minute I changed the button from orangey-gold to purple, as there's a bit of purple in the trigger inspiration. 


Supplies: various designer papers (pink is a scrap of polished stone in my scrapbasket), ivory and kraft cardstocks, Our Daily Bread designs "Randi's Song", Hero Arts CL361 Season of Giving (sentiment), Memories Artprint Brown ink, twine, purple button

Hi Lin! How very lucky to have received that beautiful stamp from Eccl. Your card is gorgeously designed and the element of the words of faith in the middle makes it extra special!
